Gibbons values this at £200, but we're estimating at $95. The stamp offered here grades 65 as follows:

Centering/Margins: 25/60

Paper Freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of Visible Paper Flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

It is important to note that like all line engraved issues printed by Perkins Bacon and De La Rue, this issue was generally very poorly centered, due to the very narrow spacing between stamps in the sheets. Generally speaking, VF stamps will be those that appear well balanced, but will generally have perforations touching, or cutting lightly into the design on at least one side.
